5 thoughts on “Paragraph?

  1. A paragraph is a about one certain topic. Ex: A paragraph titled Stars, should be all about stars. It should have at least 5 sentences. The first sentence is called a topic sentence. The rest of the paragraph is about the topic. The ending sentence is called the closing sentence. You can tell what a paragraph is about by reading the topic sentence. Ex: Stars are tiny balls of light in space. I hope you learned a lot about paragraphs!

  3. A paragraph is a piece of text about a certain subject. A paragraph usually has five or more sentences. You could be reading long piece of text that is about a certain subject that has more then one paragraph, the paragraphs in that text would be about a subject, in that subject. Paragraphs have complete sentences, correct capitalization, punctuation, and spelling (they are also indented).
    You know when you have written a paragraph when you have finished everything about the subject or, have five or more sentences. When you are done with that paragraph then you move on to a new paragraph.

  4. Paragraphs are paragraphs because they stay on topic 24/7 and the rules are must have 3-5 sentences at least . They must be clear and have full sentences . They must be indented at the beginning. They must be punctuated.

  5. A paragraph has to have proper punctuation, indents, at least 5 sentences introduction, and a conclusion. A paragraph always has an introduction telling what the paragraph is about. A paragraph also has at least 5 sentences that are it’s contents. One of the sentences is the conclusion, the conclusion wraps the paragraph up.
